Iggy's LiberalExpress bus fixed by... HARPER!!!

Oh how the twists of irony just won't stop for the poor "Just Visiting Express"... it turns out that poor Ignatieff's stricken bus was towed to and repaired by "Harper Diesel" in Cornwall, Ontario.

Yes indeed folks, Iggy's tour is cursed...
Harper saves Liberal bus
By Brian Lilley, Parliamentary Bureau

When Michael Ignatieff’s Liberal Express bus broke down on the first day of his cross-Canada tour, he had to call on Harper for help.

The bus overheated on Hwy. 34 just outside of Hawkesbury, Ont., leaving Ignatieff joking to supporters that “A guy named Stephen Harper was seen running away from the bus with motor oil on his hands.”

While Stephen Harper had no part in the breakdown, a Harper was hired to repair the bus.


Once a second bus arrived to carry passengers, supplies and luggage to Cornwall for a late event Tuesday evening, the Liberal Express was towed to Harper Diesel, a garage specializing in engine parts and repairs for buses and transport trucks.

An employee with Harper Diesel’s Cornwall service centre would only confirm the Liberal Express had been fixed there, adding the irony of Harper fixing Ignatieff’s bus hadn't dawned on him until contacted by QMI Agency.
